Le Relais de Venise: L'Entrecote
Are you recovering from a very indulgent Valentine's Day/President's Day Weekend? I sure am.
This weekend, we tried out a restaurant right under Alex's office building called Le Relais de Venise: L'Entrecote. I've always walked by, seeing a chic French bistro and thinking it'd be completely over our budget. I was quite wrong!
This restaurant's schtick is that they serve only one thing: steak frites. You get a salad, sliced steak, and french fries for a fixed price of $28.75. The salad of mixed greens and walnuts has a quirky, unusual, and very delicious mustard dressing. For the main course, you can choose your steak blue, rare, medium, or well-done. The first serving comes with a heaping pile of shoestring fries and the steak covered in a secret sauce. Once you finish your plate, they bring you a second serving of both.
Funnily enough, the reason this blog post has no photos is that...the steak sauce is extremely not pretty. I could compare it to...various horrid things, but I'll refrain. Looks like hell, TASTES LIKE HEAVEN! The steak slices were well-cooked and tender. The fries were crisp. Basically, all my favorite things. It was indeed a very happy Valentine's Day!
